I Wrote a Good Omelet

Nikki Giovanni

 

I wrote a good omelet ... and ate a hot poem ...

after loving you

 

Buttoned my car ... and drove my coat home ...in the rain ...

after loving you

 

I goed on red ... and stopped on green ... floating

somewhere in between ...

being here and being there ...

after loving you

 

I rolled my bed ... turned down my hair ... slightly

confused but ... I don't care ...

Laid out my teeth ... and gargled my gown ... them I stood

... and laid me down ...

to sleep ...

                  after loving you
